Linguine with Pinenut and Tomato Sauce

For all those who are trying to plan ahead here another vegetarian dish for vegetarian Mondays.

One of my favourite vegetarian pasta dishes consists of pine nuts, garlic, fresh herbs and tomatoes.

It is truly a pleasure to eat and ready within 20 minutes. An ideal summer lunch with the girlfriends as well as during winter.

Together with a good green salad it is light and filling and ideal for anyone who enjoys simple cooking.
